At the hostel I'm staying at, I met a young Argentinian who's been living in Barcelona for the last ten years.
How has Spain been? Big difference from Argentina?
Yes, it is much freer in Spain. In Argentina, you smoke (pot) in public and they will lock you up. In Barcelona, you can smoke and it is no problem?
No problem whatsoever?
The cops, they are fat and stupid, you see them, you put it out. If they do catch you, you pay 300 Euros and you're free.
Not like here in Singapore...
No, but that can be good. I like it here in Singapore, I don't drink so much, I don't smoke so much. It's better for my body.
What did you do for work in Spain?
I am a tattoo artist. I have a shop with my brother in Barcelona.
Wow. Tattoos? How long have you been tattooing?
(girlfriend arrives, conversation goes all Spanish...)
